Thank you to the KidSafe Foundation and Instructor Tanya Meade for providing the Women's Circle with information on Sexual Abuse of children and how to keep our children safe from predators and understanding the signs associated with this horrible crime.
Did you Know: 1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 6 boys will be sexually exploited before they reach the age of 18. Those are the reported statistics, however MOST do NOT report. 90% of the time a child is harmed by someone they know. 68% of the time a child is harmed by a family member. 95% of abuse and exploitation is preventable with education. Every child deserves the right to be safe. Every child has the right to have a voice. Every child has the right to learn how to access help. Learning these important safety skills is just as important as learning math, science and reading. It is our goal to make prevention education mandated in elementary schools and mandated sexual abuse prevention training for anyone working with children.
